Manchester Athletic Club is strengthening its fitness program with leadership from Nan Gorton. Gorton was recently chosen to helm the business’ growing Fitness Division, which includes Manchester Athletic Club in Manchester by-the-Sea, MA, MAC Fitness in Rowley, MA and MAC Fitness in Gloucester, MA.   

Gorton has been a staple at Manchester Athletic Club for the past seven years as a fitness trainer and co-owner of Hilltop Training, a popular running program among members. Most recently, she launched North Shore Sports Performance Institute (NSSPI), which offers sports performance training to kids 10-18 years old. She comes to the position with a myriad of backgrounds in addition to fitness, including careers as a lawyer and as an Olympic caliber athlete in the sport of women’s ice hockey.

The move will bolster the club’s already booming fitness department, which includes a ProFitness Program, personal training, TRX, pilates, swimming, basketball, nutrition and wellness, and over 75 group fitness classes—from strength to cardio, indoor cycling, Zumba, mind body, aquatics and Les Mills Body Pump and Body Combat.

“Nan brings a tremendous amount of energy, expertise and creativity to our members and, importantly, to our local community,” said Keith Callahan, General Manager and Managing Partner. “With Nan’s leadership, we’re excited to launch new programs for our members and have already developed a unique program called Commit to Get Fit that will be provided for club members as well as open to the community this fall."  

“I have always believed that great success comes from sharing a common goal and working together to make it happen,” added Gorton. “I am excited to get to work getting the best out of everyone I work with both as a coach and a manager.”

Manchester Athletic Club is a full-service health club featuring 12 tennis courts, the Gymazing! Child Center for preschool-aged children, iXl programs for young teens, a fitness and strength training center staffed with certified professional trainers, indoor aquatics center, multiple group exercise studios, and an outdoor pool with playground.
